Free Capital Bikeshare Rentals!
If you’ve been wondering about and even contemplating using Capital Bikeshare, which is soon arriving in the Reston/Herndon and Tysons areas, the specialty outdoor retailer REI is offering a great opportunity to check out the service in the District for FREE on Saturday, July 16, and Sunday, July 17.
To celebrate the opening of a new REI in DC this fall, the company is offering a weekend of completely free activities around the city, including district-wide free Capital Bikeshare rentals. Other activities include free entry to the C&O Canal at Great Falls Tavern, Maryland, for biking and hiking and stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking on the Potomac. These offerings are part of REI’s Unite Outside campaign, which will be running for 100 days throughout this summer and fall. You can find more information about the activities and register for them here.
